When you bring your child into Velasquez-Pierce Family Dentistry for their dental care, our dentist will monitor and evaluate their growth to ensure that their oral health is on track. If your child requires more room in their mouth for all of their permanent teeth to come in properly, Dr. Ximena Velasquez-Pierce may recommend a palatal expander. This orthodontic appliance may be recommended for other reasons, and our dentist will work with you and your child to recommend this treatment when it is necessary. By being treated with a palatal expander in Venice, Florida, at a young age, we can help your child prevent oral problems later down the line. Please contact us at 941-497-4997 for more information, and to schedule your appointment.
